How to Host a 1000 Cooks for the Cure Party!


Everyone knows someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer. A mother, a sister, a grandmother, or a friend. For some of us, it was the very person who taught us how to cook.

We invite you to join us for KitchenAid’s 1,000 Cooks for the Cure Event – July 20th to 29th to help in the fight against breast cancer. This is a fun and easy way for you to help support Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and all you have to do is cook for your friends and family.

Here is how you can participate:

1. Host a Party between July 20th and 29th.

This can be anything from a backyard BBQ, to a dessert bar, happy hour after work, a pancake breakfast, or whatever you choose.

Here is a simple invitation you can use: Invitation Template (PDF)
We also found a pink ribbon theme invitation at

2. Let Your Friends Know Why You are Participating in 1000 Cooks for the Cure.

Chances are, breast cancer has touched your life in  some way. When you send out your invitations, be sure to let your friends know about it and why you want to raise money to fight this disease. Then let them know all donations will be sent directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

When you send in your donations, you can use this form: Donation forms (PDF).
All cooks who raise over $50 in donations will receive a collectable Villaroy & Boch plate designed by Jacques Pépin.
